Howdy, I'm Paul.
I live in Red Hook, NY, and work on energy and housing projects in the Hudson Valley.
I maintain a list of Requests for Collaboration. It's a collection of ideas/topics that I'm excited about and want to help with at some point. If you're involved with anything on this list, I'd love to talk.
I'm deeply inspired by the Solarpunk aesthetic. It's an optimistic, green genre of sci-fi that stokes my imagination. I occasionally write about Solarpunk on Substack and have collected a Solarpunk Canon for others to browse and share.
Previously, I've been a programmer and tech founder. I contributed to the design and implementation of the Farcaster protocol. And I led the software engineering, product, and design teams for Curative, which became one of the largest COVID-19 testing and vaccine operations in the US.
I'm on the board of the Schumacher Center for New Economics in the Berkshires and have advised on the Berkshares local currency program. I especially appreciate the center's collection of Arthur Morgan books.
My partner, Agatha, and I are amateur yet ambitious gardeners.
